Cooperative Education: Sadie Conway
Name: Sadie Conway
Hometown: Monroe, Wis.
Major: Education (K-9)
Year in school: Senior
Co-Op job: Caregiver at Respite Care
I participate in the Co-Op program because: Co-Op gives me experience and academic credit. It gives me an additional purpose to work while in school because I am earning credit toward my degree.
Campus involvement: Women’s basketball, tennis, band.
Post-graduation dream job: Elementary school principal.
Favorite LU faculty/staff member: Instructor of General Studies David Lynch.
Lakeland is good fit for me because: Lakeland is a small campus that feels like a family away from my family. Also, I can be involved in so many activities.
Lakeland University is the only Midwestern school that offers Cooperative Education across all majors by allowing participating students to gain on-the-job knowledge and academic credit for their work. LU students can earn up to 25% of the degree through work and post-work reflection.
Each year, we welcome more students who are interested in the benefits of Co-Op and the ability to connect with a lengthy list of corporate and organizational partners who support the program and our student’s learning.
